star this property answer text <p>The government has invested £645,000 to boost adoption recruitment during 2019-20. We have funded the sector through the National Adoption Recruitment Steering Group, which has run both the National Adoption Week campaign and wider recruitment projects to target potential adopters in their areas for the children they have waiting. This will include children from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and children over the age of 5. Part of this work has included work with churches and mosques to encourage adopters from a range of different backgrounds.</p><p> </p><p>We are commissioning behavioural insights research to better understand the motivations and barriers for people who are interested in becoming foster carers or adopters. This piece of work is focused on wider recruitment but should give us insight into how we better engage adopters for children who are harder to place.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, at a recent No 10 roundtable, I gave commitments that the department will be:</p><ul><li><p>Exploring through the Adoption &amp; Special Guardianship Leadership Board decision making at Local Authority level and reported barriers to BAME families becoming adopters;</p></li><li><p>Reviewing how we can improve support in schools and in particular how designated teachers for adopted children and Virtual School Heads can best support adopted BAME children;</p></li><li><p>Improving working with BAME stakeholders, to ensure their viewpoints are included in policy development and implementation;</p></li><li><p>Asking Regional Adoption Agencies to create a national BAME recruitment strategy in collaboration with key stakeholders such as the voluntary sector organisation Homes for Good; and</p></li><li><p>Considering how best to ensure all their frontline social workers understand the law and are supportive of BAME families coming forward to adopt.</p></li></ul><p> </p>

We introduced Education, Health and Care plans to provide personalised and tailored support for those children with more complex needs and have also announced £780 million additional funding in 2020-21, bringing the total funding for high needs to £7.2 billion.</p><p> </p><p>All children who were adopted, including children with disabilities, are also entitled to access the Adoption Support Fund (ASF) which can pay for essential therapeutic services. The ASF aims to ensure that these families receive good, timely support. Adopted children also attract Pupil Premium Plus funding of £2,300 per pupil for their schools, which can be used to support their educational outcomes.</p> more like this

The United Kingdom Chief Medical Officers’ low risk drinking guidelines published in 2016 provide clear advice to women not to drink alcohol if they are planning for a pregnancy or are pregnant. Information available on the NHS website also reflects this advice.</p><p>Additionally, the Government has been clear that the alcohol industry must reflect the UK Chief Medical Officers' alcohol guidelines on the labels of their products which includes a no drinking in pregnancy logo.</p><p> </p><p>Public Health England, NHS England and local commissioners are already undertaking awareness and education on the dangers of drinking alcohol while pregnant. For example, the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership has recently launched its Drymester campaign to raise awareness of drinking alcohol when pregnant.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
